We are in the south west of France in the Charente region, known for its rolling hills and lovely countryside, our closest major town is Angouleme. Nearest airports are (in order) Bergerac, Poiters, Limoges, Bordeaux and Royanne - Irish & Scottish visitors normally use Royanne. There is an airport at Angouleme, about 35 minutes from us, however they have an on-off relationship with Ryanair, it`s worth checking out though.
By car it`s about 7-8 hours from Calais, mainly dual carriageway or Autoroute, we`ve done it in just over 6 hours but got 2 speeding tickets & brain fade so not recommended. Most SatNavs locate us. Just put in `Chez Maurit 16190 Juignac`(we`re just off a minor road D456) and it should bring you to our door. The ancient artifact called `a map` will surely get you here of course, just `phone us if in doubt and we will guide you in the last few kilometers .
